Average Indian Lunch @ Jade of India on 10Sep2013

fish head curry - S$25

fish head curry – S$25

i had not had indian fish head curry for several years. the recent fish head curry lunch at banana leaf apolo with my RI friends triggered my craving. saw the deal.com voucher S$12 for S$20 & bought 3 vouchers for 3pax lunch on 10.9.2013. 🙂

garlin naan (S$3.50) & tandoori roti (S$2.50)

i ordered a fish head curry, chicken biryani (since 3 plain rice cost S$9), rogan gosht & 1garlic naan + 1 tandoori roti. liked the papadum & the dip! 🙂

the red snapper fish head was small but whole (not 1/2) & very fresh & sweet. the curry though tasted quite good was gluey (starchy). i didn’t mind it but the usual ones like what i had at banana leaf was much better & i would not go back if i were looking specifically to have fish head curry! the chicken biryani was very good – tender tasty chicken & flavourful rice which was not too oily, 🙂 the rogan gosht was disappointing – both the curry & mutton. this was a common dish i had taken many times in different indian restaurants and almost always good so this was quite a let down in taste. the garlic naan was also not great. thinking back i probably made the wrong order of mutton. the fish head & biryani were southern indian & i would probably do better with mysore mutton. naans & roti were better with thicker curries so was ok with rogan gosht but less with fish head curry.

the meal cost S$65.70 for 3pax after 10% service & GST. with the vouchers it was S$41.70 nett. so price-wise it was good for the food we ordered. but the fish head though ok did not satisfy my craving for good fish head curry & the rogan gosht did not give me confidence that other curries would be good. don’t think i would go back anytime soon even with discount vouchers.
